Omaggio Virgilio Villoresi

Virgilio Villoresi has less than a decade of activity under his belt. But from his first, enigmatic short Frigidaire (made in 2006 with fashion designer Vivì Ponti, while he was still living in Florence), to the work he churns out prolifically today in Milan – the city he loves and would not trade for any other in Italy – for large fashion houses (Valentino, Fendi, Vogue), corporate brands in search of product storytelling (Caffarel, Sammon- tana) and whimsical musicians with whom he shares a sense of imagery (Vinicio Capossela, Dente) – he’s come a long way.

His only weapon: a mastery of the stop-motion technique, of which in these 10 years he has become a ver- itable contemporary cantor. His ideas have influenced an entire panorama of underground videomakers, art galleries and advertising graduates from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED).

Virgilio Villoresi (Florence, 1979) learned alchemical synthesis from Harry Smith, structural ontology from Jonas Mekas, how to make garbage art from Jack Smith and ritual magic from Kenneth Anger. His early inspirations include Polish animation, experimental and avant-garde Italian and European filmmakers, American underground cinema, as well as avant-garde theater, art and literature. He lives and works in Milan.
